This summer, for the 4th of July weekend, we visited our good friends (M & D) in Nashville, TN. I went to college in Nashville, so BG and I make a trip down there at least once a year to visit my best friends from college. M was one of my college roomies and D is her college boyfriend, now husband. My college friends and I ate out quite often and pretty late. As all college students are, we didn’t care about what we were eating, as long as it was cheap, tasted good and included having fun with friends. Needless to say, we packed in some pretty unhealthy “meals.” I have to say, though, M & D have made some changes since I moved away.
M recently became a personal fitness trainer and is now conscious about her and D’s diet. She’s loaded with healthy recipes, yet delicious and affordable ones! This is one of my favorites that she served us when we visited this summer. Super simple, super fast and super tasty! Use Arnold Whole Wheat Sandwich Thins which are only 100 calories, turkey bacon which is half the calories as regular bacon, and Kraft singles made with 2% milk. Toast the buns and add eggs scrambled in olive oil rather than butter. Easy enough? Go make it!
Healthy Egg, Cheese & Turkey Bacon Breakfast Sandwich
(To make two sandwiches)
Two Whole Wheat Sandwich Thins
2 Tbsp Skim Milk
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
2 Slices Kraft Cheese Singles (Made with 2% Milk)
4 Slices Turkey Bacon
Lightly toast sandwich thins in your toaster or toaster oven.
Place bacon on microwave-safe plate lined with paper towel and cover with another paper towel. Microwave on high for 4-6 minutes until crispy. Cut bacon slices in half.
Meanwhile, heat olive oil in skillet. In small bowl or measuring cup, beat eggs and milk together. Pour egg mixture all at once into skillet and cook on medium-high heat until almost cooked through, about 3-4 minutes. Do not scramble. Fold over (like an omelet) and continue to cook the rest of the way, another minute or two. While it is still in the skillet, use your spatula to divide the eggs into two wedges. Place one slice of cheese on each wedge and let melt for about 30 seconds. Top with 4 bacon halves.
Assemble the sandwiches by placing the egg/cheese/bacon combo between the sandwich thins and enjoy!
